While waiting for the blue hour

I was getting bored while waiting for the blue hour, and since I had a new GoPro Hero 3+ with me and a POV mount, I thought I test it out and make a little behind the scenes video.

I just think I sound strange. Not sure if it’s because GoPro, the cold (I was shaking :)), that I’m a little sick, or because everybody finds it strange to listen to own voice. But I still hope you can understand me. Btw. sorry for the quality and framing. This is my first video with the GoPro, and I don’t yet have a grasp on what everything is in the view.

Low Danube under the Apollo bridge

And this is one of the photos I took today, around 30 minutes after the video. The blue hour was not completely blue, but still quite interesting. As the Danube is also quite low now, I could get much closer to the bridge as usually, and so get a much better view. Of course I almost feel on the rocks many times, but that’s always the risk. At least they were only covered by mud and not frozen :)

This is a HDR from 6 shots created in Oloneo Photoengine and then blended with original exposures in Photoshop.
